July 2004: Chadwick’s

Judged solely by the flavor of its patty, Chadwicks can claim one of the area’s best-tasting saloon burgers. Unfortunately, it is served on a chilly roll.

From the "Great Hamburgers" dining guide

Chadwicks, 5247 Wisconsin Ave., NW; 202-362-8040. Hamburger with fries, $6.95. Visually, this plump, half-pound patty with deep grill marks defines the term "char-broiled." Cooked to medium-rare, the burger has a beefy flavor untainted by any trace of the bitterness usually imparted by very dark grill marks.

Judged solely by the flavor of its patty, Chadwicks can claim one of the area's best-tasting saloon burgers. Unfortunately, it is served on a chilly roll. Meat this good deserves a high-quality, toasted roll.

The fries were freshly out of the fryer and crisp, with a good potato flavor.
